On 24 September 2016, St. Nicholas’ Home, Penang held their yearly carnival at their venue at Jalan Bagan Jermal in Penang. It is called the St. Nicholas Home Carnival. It was from 10a.m. to 3p.m.
The carnival had booths where people were selling food, products and items There were also game stalls set up where many people were seen having fun at those stalls. St. Nicholas’ Home, Penang’s very own blind masseurs also set up their own booth area to offer massages to visitors of this carnival.
There were tables set up near the booths which allowed visitors to sit down and enjoy their delicious food bought from the food stalls. There was a stage where the official opening ceremony of this carnival took place and also some performances. Chairs were set up in front of the stage for visitors to have a seat and view the stage programmes.
The event began with speeches by VIPs. After that there was a presentation of cheque from a company donating to St. Nicholas’ Home Penang for another one of their upcoming event.

We gave away our company’s voucher worth RM50 which can be used for event services. A question related to the carnival was asked and the first person on stage to answer the question correctly won the prize. A lady went on stage and answered correctly, so she won the prize.
This lady won the prize and the voucher was given out by Robert and Samantha of the St. Nicholas’ Home, Penang’s band.
After that, we were nearing the end of the carnival and music was played through the sound system. One of the visitors, an elderly gentleman went on stage and danced. He seemed to be enjoying himself at the carnival, which was good, and so, we invited more people on stage to dance together with him.
Towards the end of the carnival, a visitor, the volunteers, the sound and technical team, the St. Nicholas’ Home, Penang band and some members of their organisation went on stage to dance.
It was a good time at the carnival with so many things to see, try, eat, play and buy at the stalls; and so many event programmes to enjoy. Most of the stalls were sold out by the end of the event, which was good news for those who came to set up a stall.This year happens to be St. Nicholas’ Home, Penang’s 90th Anniversary. Their theme is Faith + Dignity. Congratulations, St. Nicholas’ Home, Penang on the success of your carnival this year and wishing you a Happy 90th Anniversary.
